Petition for the
Minority Farmers Advisory Committee was created to serve socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers to make recommendations to the Secretary of Agriculture. The Committee is made up of stakeholders, educators, and concerned citizens, who meet quarterly to listen to the challenges that Minority Farmers and Ranchers are facing in receiving equitable treatment from programs overseen by USDA.
Failure to reinstate this charter will directly impact Minority Farmers and Ranchers, particularly people of color. Our access to programs and services will be greatly diminished. Minority Farmers, especially, people of color will be disenfranchised, once again.
Working with this nonprofit has been nothing but amazing!
I've always wanted to be a farmer but never knew where to start.
FARC-GA changed that for me.

Why We Do What We Do
In the United States, the largest percentage of farms are owned and operated by white farmers (approximately 95%), while indigenous farmers, black farmers, Asian and Hispanic farmers make up about 5% of the farming population.
There were nearly a million black farmers in 1920. Today, there are approximately 45,000. Farmers and Ranchers of Color are here to help change the farming demographic and make sure the agricultural industry financially stops overlooking the small disadvantaged farming community (SDA).
